For those of you who watched the Butler & Wilson show a couple of weeks ago, you may have heard Simon Wilson accuse me of liking bloke-ish things – I presume he was referring to football and decorating!
Well, both of those pastimes are finished for me for the forseeable future (until the new season!), so I've had to think of something else to write about. This week it's really easy… it's PINK… and I don't mean the colour!
I'll be honest with you, I'm not a fan of all her music, but I think she has an incredible voice, and I saw a video of one of last year's live shows and it looked amazing. So when two of our floor managers Vanessa and Dickie (yes, he of Dickie's Picks fame) said they were planning to go, I dropped VERY large hints about going too.
It worked, because a couple of weeks later there was a note taped to my dressing room door that said SO WHAT?. I thought, 'how rude', but when I checked more closely, it turned out to be a ticket to one of her gigs!
We went to the O2 last Friday night along with Paula, one of our Co-ordinating Producers, and Dickie's mates Lucas and Lewis – I promised to name check them in my blog! The night totally lived up to the anticipation, it was a spectacular show with a great band and stunning aerial work – Pink even continued singing while she swung upside down on a trapeze!
I was exhausted just watching, so thank goodness I had my new Northern Nights bedding to slip into when I got home! It's the TSV on Friday and has a 400 thread count, so it's silky smooth on the skin – just what I needed after my night out.
I'd love to know who you like listening to, and any stories you have of great concerts you've been to.
